A last-minute addition to your Halloween menu: Hairy eyeballs

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Easy ways to make kids happy|Recipes and Food

We were at Farm Boy yesterday when I spotted a package of rambutan for $1.49. I decided to buy it and make everyone try some. (One of the perks of parenthood, IMO.)

Rambutan, in case you’re not familiar with it, is a fruit from Southeast Asia. It’s chewy and very mild tasting and sweet. The flavour is pretty close to lychee actually!

It looks like this when you cut it open:

HAIRY EYEBALLS a.k.a Rambutan

… which makes me think it’s the ideal fruit to serve up at Halloween, don’t you think?!

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (18) and Sarah (16). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
